Innovation, opportunity and service


What started with a single scissor lift in Hawera has grown into a nationwide hire company servicing projects throughout New Zealand.

Presco Hire is part of the Presco Group, a family-owned group of companies established by Steve Prestidge that provide specialised support to a number of New Zealand’s backbone industries. Read the Presco story.

In 1991, Steve began offering the first scissor lift for hire in the Taranaki region. With demand growing, and recognising the need for greater access to hire equipment for the wider construction industry, Steve expanded the company not only through a larger fleet, but also through partnerships with hire and delivery companies. 

This strong network allows us to support more projects in multiple locations, while cutting out the time and frustration our customers had been facing when sourcing, procuring and delivering hire equipment.

While we’re still headquartered in Taranaki and service our own fleet, we can connect you with reliable, fit-for-purpose equipment whenever you need it, New Zealand-wide.
